Thermostat not turned on

Turn up the thermostat or check high limit switch

Most hot water pressure washers are equipped with a thermostat to control output water temperature.  Check the thermostat setting.  

If set correctly to a high temperature there may be a problem with the thermostat.  Check continuity across the contacts.

Some machines do not have a thermostat.  Usually the BTU output of these units is not enough the have the temperature run away. So, manufacturers cheap out and don't install a thermostat.  If this is the case for your machine we seriously recommend installing one.  It is possible to have a pump problem, which slows down the water flow.  If this happens you could be faced with an overheated burner. 

All hot water pressure washers should have a high limit switch installed, whether you have a thermostat or not.  These switch are installed in the output of the burner.  Check to ensure this switch is not preventing the burner from firing.     

SOME OF THESE OPERATIONS CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT TRAINING IN THESE PROCEDURES, WE RECOMMEND YOU SEEK ASSISTANCE FROM
